    Hanks Amish Belts ... WOW!

    I know I'm preaching to the choir, but I finally got a couple Hank's Amish belts (received yesterday) and had to post about how impressed I am. For $30 a pop I can't imagine a better carry belt. Easily as nice as other belts I've seen in the $100 range. Obviously I don't know how they'll wear yet, but my first impression is extremely positive.

    Edit: Also an important FYI: Definitely follow their sizing guide! I don't carry IWB very often anymore so I only got mine 1 size larger, and I could have easily gone two.

    I've had one for well over a year and it's held up fine. I suppose one can pay a lot more for a belt that's a little better.

    This will be my next belt purchase for CCW use... i have a good one now from barsony.. theyre an iffy company to deal with, but the belt is good. However for the same price as that, I'd get a Hanks Amish Belt next time.

    Wouldn't you know it. I wear a 1-3/4" belt. It really is the best compromise. Widest belt that will go through the loops of ALMOST every pair of pants, jeans, slacks I own or buy. 2" would not work except for special purchases and 1-1/2 is just too narrow especially for us big guys carrying full size 1911's.

    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I'd rather have two layers glued and stitched. They look nice, and pricing is certainly attractive.

    Price is rather attractive. I could use a good 1.5" black carry belt. Thanks for the share...

    And each one comes with a jar of honey and a gift certificate for a free barn-raising.

    OldVet, is the belt stiff enough to support a holster well with not being two layers and does it stay stiff? For the price I'm interested to get myself a leather belt to go along with my wilderness instructor belt

    That's right! We're putting ours up this weekend. Haven't told the Homeowner's Association yet, but I'm sure they won't mind ;-)

    Yeah, I was tempted to get the 2" but measured my belt loops before placing my order and got the 1.5. Haven't tried my 1911 yet, but it works great with a Glock 22 and a spare mag. Lost a lot of weight last year and my waist is down to about 34 now so I needed new belts (and new everything else for that matter). The 1.5 inch belt is perfect at my current size.

    Very interesting!

    Took a chance and just ordered one in black and one in brown. Thanks for the heads up and I hope these belts are as good as they look and sound.
    I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
